Yannick Hajee joins our group as a PhD student
Yannick Hajee joined our group as a PhD student as of 1 July 2022.
Here is an introduction from Yannick:
I am from the Netherlands and was actually born in Nijmegen. After high school I moved to Sweden to study. I worked as an au pair for a year in Stockholm to learn Swedish and then studied at Uppsala University for my Bachelor in Chemistry and Master in Chemistry - Bio & nano materials. I searched specifically for a PhD related to organoids / organs-on-a-chip and found Mani's interesting project which also fit my experience.
I am interested in applying physical chemistry methods to biochemistry, and in making a difference through biomedical research. I am particularly interested in working with biomaterials, biosensors, organoids, organs-on-a-chip, microfluidics, drug delivery systems, polymeric materials and other nanobiotechnology such as nanopores for DNA and protein sequencing. I like to cook, hike, cycle, learn languages, play board games, read or listen to books (especially SciFi / Fantasy and non-fiction) and play tennis amongst other things.
